Rice is one of nine basic ingredients. In some countries, especially Asia, rice is the most important staple food. In addition to rice, rice is also used as a maker of various kinds of snacks and pastries, mainly from ketan, including to be made tapai. PT PPI is also often given assignment by the Government to help absorb the production of grain farmers with absorption of rice farmers. On several occasions, Indonesia has managed to export rice to Papua New Guinea from Merauke Regency, Papua Province. On several occasions, the government has also exported specialty rice such as organic rice to American and European countries. Such exports are carried out by provinces that have developed organic rice in their agricultural areas.
